McCreath won't run for Rhinoceros Party in Labrador Election
However, I have determined that it would not be in my best interests at this time, to run. First of all, as someone who is seriously considering a run at St. John's City Council later this year, I fear that a run for a seat which I do not live in, for a party with a mandate of mocking the political process, would cause me more harm than good, in terms of further developing my credibility as a potential politician. Secondly, given that I have landed a new job within the Provincial Public Service, I would be forced to resign in order to run in a Federal Election, due to Conflict of Interest rules. Unfortunately, I am clearly not in a good enough financial situation to be able to afford the luxury of quitting my day job, to take a run at an election seat, which quite frankly, I have practically no chance of winning.
Ultimately, I am flattered to have been considered by the Rhinoceros Party and openly thank them for their consideration and trust in me.
